Ainsworth: Fans saw us through

10 October 2013

Gareth Ainsworth said the fans were the 12th man at Adams Park on Tuesday as his side reached the area quarter-final stage with a 2-1 win over League 1 Bristol City.

The 40-year-old was impressed with the Wanderers fans which turned up to support the team on the night, as well as his side’s reaction to their defeat to Burton Albion last weekend 

"The fans saw us through again at the end; they are starting to know when I need them," said Ainsworth.

"They knew we were under the cosh but they stuck with us to their end and we saw the ball out really well.

"The fans were brilliant. If you can get down on Saturday and get behind the boys, hopefully you can see some more great attacking football and some more goals." 
Returning midfielder Matt Bloomfield made his first start in 14 months infront of the Adams Park
faithful, scoring one and creating one in the impressive win, and he expressed his delight at being out there on the home turf again. He said: "When I signed my new contract in the summer I said it would be great to get back out at Adams Park
"I've had a special relationship with the fans over the last 10 years and it's great to get back out there."
